these concussions. that what can it is nfl do about it? >> very little. they find them receivers in a similar position as the tobacco industry, you're never going to make a cigarette safe. similarly, you'll never make the sport of playing football safe, whether you're talking about the pee wee league, high school, pop warner or the nfl. the case of junior, it puts an exclamation point on now what are several years of new medical data we now know about the cost of playing football. >> now i look at that and i begin to think i don't know that i want my son playing football. i know college is already too dangerous, nfl college way too dangerous. what do you think would you stop your son from playing pee wee or high school football? >> it's an interesting question. my father-in-law was drafted by the dallas cowboys and always had dreams that my son now four years old would play football. two years ago, it was a real debate. my wife has drawn the line in the last year and said no way no how. my wife is not alone actually. over the last year, 1 million less kids are playing pop warner football than

about sports and sports injuries. in the nfl especially. remember junior seau last year who took his own life. he shot himself in the chest because he wanted his brain to be studied. the doctors looked at his brain and told the family and they report this morning that his brain did test positive for chronic traumatic encephalopathy or cte repeated blows to the head and head injuries that can lead to dementia, memory loss. it is a problem that's plagued a lot of former nfl players. this is the issue that the nfl has to address when we talk about helmet to helmet blows and the sort of violent nature of the nfl. >> bill: so much evidence of this. i think dave zirin told us there are 9,000 lawsuits. phenomenal number. >> peter: one big lawsuit with several former players injuries lead -- brain injuries are leading to major problems. which leads us to this story. virginia commonwealth university did a study and looked at how we, as a nation, are doing in the health department. >> bill: this is stunning. >> peter: turns out we're not doing so great. americans die sooner and experience higher r
